Meet Pulse, Richmond Virginia's New Bus Rapid Transit
Dan Malouf provides a dispatch from Richmond, Virginia's new Pulse Bus Rapid Transit system, which opened at the end of June this year.
"The Pulse's 7.6 mile route has 14 stops and runs in a mix of curbside bus lanes, median busway, and mixed traffic with cars," writes Malouf. "Most of the line runs along Broad Street, Richmond's highest-ridership transit corridor."
Malouf provides detailed analysis (with pictures) of every aspect of the Pulse BRT system, from street configurations to station platforms to signal prioritization.
In June 2017, Malouf also provided detailed coverage of Richmond's big vision for transit in the city, which includes 80 miles of BRT routes.
